Frequently asked questions about electricians

We may not notice it but we use electricity every time we fire up a laptop, turn on a light switch, or use an appliance. And when our electrical systems aren’t working properly, we need electricians to install and maintain all of the electrical systems that keep homes and business humming along smoothly. They wire homes and maintain the wiring systems in buildings and homes. Both commercial and residential electricians need to be certified at the state level.

Electricians use various tools for installation like conduit benders, screwdrivers, drills, and saws. They have access to various items that might need to be replaced such as circuit breakers, fuses, outlets, switches, electrical components, lighting, and wiring. Periodic inspections may need to be done by an electrical professional to make sure your interior and exterior electrical systems are running smoothly. An electrician can replace a circuit breaker, install lighting or a ceiling fan. Most importantly, a certified electrician will be familiar with the safety requirements for any particular wiring or electrical job.

There are lots of reasons to hire a certified electrician for your home improvement project. If you need to add an outlet, install or update a circuit breaker, add outdoor lighting, or other electrical project, you’ll need to find an electrician. In order to find the best pro for your project you’ll need to understand the scope of your project because electricians have varying levels of certification. You’ll want to take the time to research average costs for a project such as yours, and check out reviews before you talk to several electricians in order to get the best one for you task.

When you contact a pro be sure to ask if they’re certified in your area, whether they’re usually able to complete projects in on time, and who will actually be doing the work. You can go online and search for an electrician on your own. The easiest and most effective way to find a qualified electrician is to use a service that connects homeowners with vetted contractors for free, such as Porch. You just need to give us your ZIP code, describe the electrical installation or repair project, provide contact details, and we’ll match you with a qualified pro in your area who can tackle your next electrical project.

An electrician’s hourly rate will vary depending upon a variety of factors: where you’re located and the type of pro you hire makes a difference in the cost, along with what kind of project you need help with. Areas with higher costs of living will have more expensive rates for electricians, and there are also various levels of licensing that will affect the price, too.

Rates are often higher for the first hour because it covers travel time.After - hours or emergency calls will run at a higher rate, too.If you need an electrician, —whether you have an electrical emergency on your hands or want to add lighting or a new outlet to your home—the cost of hiring a pro who’s trained and licensed is well worth the expense.Electrical projects can come with various safety hazards, as well as rules and regulations, all of which a pro can easily handle.

Most of the outlets in our homes have two or four plugs. A switched outlet is one in which half of the plugs are always switched on, that means it’s always ready to turn on and provide power—while the other half can be turned off and on via a wall switch. Wiring a switch outlet is similar to wiring a lighting device. Before doing anything, go online and consult a DIY diagram with step by step instructions. Better yet, it’s usually wise to hire a licensed electrician who can safely and efficiently tackle the job for you.

An electrician will suggest that you replace the outlet if it is more than a few years old. They’ll suggest that you make sure the new outlet is not the GFI type, and that it matches the number of amps to that provided by your circuit breaker. A pro will know the ins and outs of the codes, regulations, and standards surrounding electricity in your home. A contractor can decode the meaning of the various different colors of wires. If you want a hand with wiring a switched outlet, we make it easy to connect with experienced pros in your area.

Many homeowners have electrical outlets installed at some point. Whether you want extra lighting in your home office, or want to add a new appliance, it makes sense to hire a licensed, professional electrician for the project. The cost of installation will vary depending on many factors. Electricians charge different rates in different locales. They vary their prices according to their level of licensing, and the fee can vary according to the complexity of the installation. The following factors will influence the cost: existing wiring, location of the outlet, the outlet’s purpose and type, electrical boxes and materials. The best thing to do is find a top electrical pro in your area and have them come offer an estimate for getting the job done. You may want to get three estimates for comparison. If you would like a hand with an outlet installation, we make it easy to connect with qualified pros in your area.

Whether or not you can do electrical work without a license depends on where you live. Most states require licensing, permits, and inspections for electrical work. This is for the safety and welfare of us all. Minor repairs—such as replacing a light fixture or broken switch—can be accomplished without a license. Anything more complex usually requires a license. If you want to add circuits, work on a panel, or upgrade service, you would need a license to handle those jobs. Without a license, you would not be able to get the liability insurance required for contractors, nor would you be able to get a permit. In order to get a license, an electrician must have completed three steps: journeyman, apprenticeship, and then they must have become a master. Working with an unlicensed contractor can lead to safety hazards, costly repairs later on, and a host of other headaches. We make it a snap to connect with experienced pros in your area for your next electrical project.
